Aleppo: Army Captures Two Key Districts West of International Airport in Major Breakthrough
The army men drove militants out of Karam al-Jazmati and Karam al-Tarab districts in the Eastern part of Aleppo city just to the West of the city’s international airport.
Army officers are celebrating the victory as the pro-government forces’ success in capturing Karam al-Jazmati and Karam al-Tarab was a giant stride to reinvigorate security at Aleppo international airport.
Reports said the pro-government forces deployed in the Central and Southern parts of Aleppo city should now advance in the region for around 2 kilometers more before they can shake hands.
The army men now continue their advances to cut off communication roads connecting the Central part of the city to its Southern part to eventually tighten siege on militants in the Eastern districts of Aleppo.
On Saturday, Abdullah Muhammad al-Muhaysini, the religious leader of the Jeish al-Fatah coalition of terrorist groups, acknowledged militants’ defeats and expressed surprise at the rapid advances made by the Syrian government forces in the Eastern districts of Aleppo city.
Al-Muhaysini underlined the widening rifts among commanders of the militant groups, and added, “Commanders are just justifying the root cause of the existing rifts, while these rifts among the militants pushed the (militant groups’) ‘Great Epic Operation’ in Aleppo into total failure and a major, crushing defeat.”
The Saudi Mufti (religious leader) termed as fruitless the start of any fresh offensive by the militants given the absence of unity and widening gaps among the militants, and regretted that unity is no more of any use after the almost complete fall of Aleppo to the army and the recent evacuation of all militants from Damascus.
